Help Needed With Non-Starting Berry Flame/Salisbury Turbo 2 Gas Fire

Postby PaulF » Tue Jan 02, 2018 1:33 pm

2nd time lucky with posting this - 1st one disappeared!!
Hi all - can anyone assist with a non starting gas fire?
It's an older Robinson Wiley that only gets turned on 1 or 2 times per year.
Had it working for 7 hours yesterday and today will not fire up.
It's a turbo fan model Berry Flame/Salisbury Turbo 2.
At start up the fan comes on as normal and the piezo works fine after the initial 20/30 seconds start up - but no gas - although the gas feed to the unit is working ok at the stop cock next to unit.
The manual states there is a manual thermostat switch on the unit for overheating reset - does anyone know where this is located?
Assuming the reset does not work whats the next check item - solenois? or?
Any/all help greatly appreciated

Simply Build It

Probably too late, but the culprit is probably the APS.

Thanks for reply. As we did not need the fire during winter was not a drame.
Tested everything else on fire - fairly basic set up - only conclusion I came to was the ECU/Brain/Control unit - it was sparking but solenoid not opening.
Is that what you refer to as the APS?
